This pumpkin pie recipe is gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, nut-free, and soy-free, so everyone in the family should be able to enjoy a slice.

We are not the biggest pie lovers but we do LOVE some good old pumpkin pie. And a nice apple pie too. Growing up pumpkin pie was THE holiday recipe we looked forward to the most. It reminds us of family. We have many happy memories eating pumpkin pie. We normally make a few pies as we it never gets old to us and our whole family loves pumpkin pie too.

But today it’s all about pumpkin and cinnamon toast crunch.  A new way to enjoy the classic holiday pumpkin pie.

Wait… did you say cinnamon toast crunch?

Yes! We did.

We thought of this dessert creation one day over coffee. Naturally we were discussing dessert recipes in the morning over coffee. We admit that happens a lot. Don’t hate us.

This cinnamon toast crunch pumpkin pie was just what we envisioned…we really wanted something different and tasty.

Who doesn’t like their cereals with just about anything?

And ever since we started making homemade cereals we want them all the time. We enjoy them in blizzards and with marshmallows.

We present you with the new best tasting pumpkin pie recipe.

What makes this pumpkin pie so different and extra delicious is we used CINNAMON TOAST CRUNCH as the CRUST.

Oh yeah.

Did we blow your socks off? haha

This pumpkin pie recipe is so easy to make too. Just the way we do most of our recipes plus keeping the ingredients as wholesome as we can. Although you have to live a little on the edge right? And why not mix cereal with a holiday favorite?

This is an upgraded cinnamon toast crunch pumpkin pie recipe.  Once the cinnamon toast crunch crust is rolled and pressed into the pie shell and baking in the oven, you can prepare the pumpkin pie filling. Let crust cool and then pour in the pumpkin pie. This pumpkin pie mousse taste just like the real think and no additional baking is needed. Just set in fridge until you are ready to slice it.

And you know what would go great with this cinnamon toast crunch pumpkin pie??? Cashew creme. We used the cashew marshmallow creme from our S’mores cookbook. But this one would go great too.

Hello, I was just wondering how you make the crust…not sure ifi missed something. If its just the cereal, how does it hold together? Thank you.

the cinnamon toast crunch cereal is the crust – we just blended it up in a food processor and pressed into the pan.
